  1. *** NB SPOILER ALERT ***

    I found the storyline of Cathy Martin being raped for the second time difficult and upsetting to watch. Even though the assault itself wasn't shown, her fear when confronted by the rapist was all too vivid; and in the later scene of her stumbling along a corridor, the violent brutality of the attack was all too clear. I'll be honest: in earlier seasons I didn't like Barbara Whinnery's acting as Cathy - I found the dreamy expression and little-girl-lost voice grated on me a bit, and the character too often seemed to be played for cheap laughs. But her performance in this episode - especially in the final scene when she brokenly declares "Cathy's gone now" - is devastating.

    1. Agreed. One of St. E's strengths is that it took characters who could have been one-dimensional or comical and deepened them. Cathy's first rape was upsetting enough, but for her to be raped twice was beyond horrible. Her total retreat from reality was, as you said, devastating. Throughout it all, Whinnery is utterly convincing.
